DIARY DATES AUGUST 27–29, 2021 OCTOBER 24–NOVEMBER 1 ABOVE: LEEDS FESTIVAL BRADFORD SCIENCE FESTIVAL Stormzy will be one of the headliners at next year’s Leeds Festival The Leeds Festival returns with six headliners on two stages, including Stormzy and Liam Gallagher. The Science Festival was due to take place in July but was moved further down the diary because of coronavirus. But here it is, just in time for half-term. It’s happening at the (excellent) Science and Media Museum, and will also be spilling out online and across other channels. Bramham Park, Leeds leedsfestival.com OCTOBER 8, 2021 THEA GILMORE When Thea says this is her first ever completely solo tour, she means it because she’ll be accompanying herself on guitar, keyboard and loop station. That said, Mark Radcliffe (yes, that one) will be supporting her. National Science and Media Museum Bradford 0800 047 8124 scienceandmediamuseum.org.uk HALLOWEEN Pocklington Arts Centre pocklingtonartscentre.co.uk DECEMBER 3, 2021 OCTOBER 28–30 HUMAN LEAGUE SHUDDERSFIELD GHOST WALK Swish back to the eighties with Phil Oakey and the rest of the crew. Eyeliner optional. Around town Shuddersfield! Geddit?! This socially distanced ghoulish walking tour of Huddersfield is a) by candlelight, b) spooky and c) ooky (probably). So it’s lots of fun and educational, too – for example, you’ll find out where various bodies are buried. Age recommendation is for 12 year olds and over; although there is an ‘adults only’ Shuddersfield ghost walk, which is strictly for the over 18s, possibly because it includes a trip to the pub to sample other kinds of spirits.
